Bunyamwera orthobunyavirus glycoprotein precursor is processed by cellular signal peptidase and signal peptide peptidase (2016-08-02) - Journal articleBunyamwera virus (BUNV) is the prototype of the Orthobunyavirus genus and Bunyaviridae family that contains important human and animal pathogens. The cleavage mechanism of orthobunyavirus glycoprotein precursor (GPC) and ...
Experimental verification of the ab initio phase transition sequence in SrZrO3 and comparisons with SrHfO3 and SrSnO3 (2017-01-19) - Journal articleWe present detailed Raman studies of SrZrO3 (SZO) that show three anomalies in Raman modes:One has a small jump in frequency ω; one has its intensity vanish; and a third has a sharp change in temperature derivative dω(T)/dT ...
Contaminants in commercial preparations of ‘purified’ small leucine-rich proteoglycans may distort mechanistic studies (2017-01-28) - Journal articleThis paper reports the perplexing results that came about because of seriously impure commercially available reagents. Commercial reagents and chemicals are routinely ordered by scientists and are expected to have been ...
Corn-cob like nanofibres as cathode catalysts for an effective microstructure design in solid oxide fuel cells (2017-01-09) - Journal articleAn efficient cathode for solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) is mainly determined by the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) activity of the mixed materials. We demonstrate a new microstructure design through a nanofibrous electrode ...
